Why not start your Cirrus flying experience with the SR20?
Slightly smaller than its brother the SR22, and powered by the smooth running 6 cylinder IO-360 Continental engine, the SR20 is the answer for that trip that does not require the larger payload of the SR22. Fitted with the Avidyne multifunction display, the flight instruments are conventional, and the aeroplane is equipped to IFR standards.
A cruise in the 140-150 knot range is eminently possible in this machine, 3 to 4 people travel in comfort and safety, reassured by the now legendary Cirrus ballistic parachute recovery system.
Time logged on the SR20 counts in full towards the 5 hour requirement to be able to hire and fly both aircraft.
